A new box mod entry from iJoy always bring us, well, joy. Sorry, we had to just this one time! In all seriousness though, we really do get excited when iJoy brings a new vape mod of any kind to the market. With the Capo 100W, they’ve created a compact device that is supposed to pack a big punch. It has a slew of unique aspects that we’re dying to tell you about, so read on for more!
We’re used to iJoy creating really interesting box mods, but not necessarily on the smaller side. While this isn’t being advertised as a mini vape mod, it certainly can compete in that category. It’s certainly very boxy, but it has some nice accents within them that give it more style. Below the OLED screen are the +/- buttons, and below that is your usb port. The fire button takes up about a third of on of the sides. It’s not that it’s huge; it’s just that the Capo is really pretty small.
That size helps in that it fits in your hand really well. Despite its small size, it has nice heft that adds to the feeling of a quality built product. The zinc allow construction also gives it some ruggedness, allowing you to relax because it won’t get dinged up that easily.
This kit comes with the Captain Mini sub ohm tank, and it fits the colour scheme and feel really well. It truly looks as if it was made for the Capo, and the seamlessness in design extends to the build as well.
While the iJoy Capo tops out at “only” 100 watts, the Capo sure does bring the vaping power. Leveraging the IWEPAL chip, this box mod knows how to capitalise on every one of its watts. Although you don’t even need to take it up to 100 to get a great vaping experience, it is always good to know you have the option. It ramps up really quick and hits the top end without any problems at all. This isn’t always the case with vape mods advertising a certain wattage number, but iJoy has our trust and delivers.
With the included Captain Mini tank, we saw some impressive results both in terms of vapour production and flavour. This is a kit that doesn’t skimp on either. It’s fairly evenly weighted, with the box mod providing power and the tank wielding it to execute a rather flawless vaping experience. We also saw some impressive battery life out of the included iJoy 21700 battery. It’s rare to have a battery included at all, and a powerful one like this was a treat. It didn’t quite live up to the “twice as good as an 18650 battery” hype, but it performed admirably anyhow.
Being that this is an iJoy vape mod, we expect a full suite of features, and that’s what we get. The Capo 100W is variable wattage, and also includes temperatures control for stainless steel and nickel. These also have a sub-mode setting for soft, normal, and hard, which gives you different power curves essentially. Throw in the TCR mode for more advanced users, and this is a very flexible vape that can fit many experience levels.
The other main feature that we already mentioned is the 21700 battery. Again, this is so far from standard that we have to tout it as a feature of this box mod. Most if not all vape mods will not come with a battery at all, and here iJoy throws in a powerful one. This is their attempt to show vapers that a 1-battery system can perform as well as a two-battery system. While they may not have reached that lofty goal yet, they also aren’t far off. It’s definitely a huge plus compared to other 1-battery box mods.
Here’s a list of the important features:
- 100W Power Output
- VW/TC(Ni/Ti/SS)/TCR Output Modes
- Resistance Range: 0.05-3ohm (TC)
- Temperature Range: 100-315C/200-600F
- 21700 battery
- 0.96” OLED Screen
- 510 Threading
- Size Specs: Depth 52mm/ Width 30mm/ Height 78.2mm (130mm with tank)/ Weight 208g (with tank)
Ease of Use:
Not surprisingly, this iJoy vape mod is easy to use. We found the screen to be on the small side, but it is an OLED and thus is crystal clear and easy to read. Going through the menu was a breeze and switching between different modes was also straightforward. The IWEPAL chipset quickly reads your atomizer and displays accurate information, and from there you’re able to make the tweaks you want to optimise your vape session.
Likewise, the Captain Mini tank was what you want in terms in ease of use from a tank. It screwed on without any trouble via 510 threading, and had a nice firm grip to the mod. Refilling is done by a top fill design that is intuitive. You’ll just slide back the mouthpiece to reveal an opening and you can add your favourite e-liquid on the fly.
At a super low price of £39.99 from one of the most reliable stores in the UK, this box mod is a steal of a deal. It’s true that lower wattage vapes are less expensive but this is a full kit that includes a tank and a battery. It would be a great value even without the battery thrown in there, and it is a superb one with it.
We really took to the iJoy Capo 100W after getting going with it. It’s really very small, and almost too small if you weren’t intending on getting a mini type vape mod. Yet, there is nothing else small about it. From the quality of build to the vape output, it comes up large. Perhaps the only thing we were a little disappointed with is the screen size. We could have done with a bigger size, but we also have to admit that it reads well even with it being smaller.
Whether you are new to box mods are looking to add one to your collection, you should definitely consider the Capo. It’s incredibly portable, reliable, and productive. Although we love it for every day use, it’s worth having as a travel vape even if you don’t make it your go-to. The value is top notch, and so is the brand. The Capo gets a big thumbs up and we recommend it fully.
